“I created the blog Pearls of Our Lives in 2013 as an outlet for my musings, a personal blog to document random thoughts, opinions, explore my feelings about a variety of life experiences, find language for some of the challenges I encountered and lessons learned. A decade later it has evolved to reflect my personal and professional growth, and I am proud to keep sharing that growth with my readers. As always I hope these pearls bring something meaningful and useful to you.” – Mah
